“You are where you are because of who you were, but where you go depends entirely on who you choose to be.”

My Thoughts

The Miracle Morning was a typical self-help book.  The concepts were basic and the writing was a bit over the top. I feel this book could be easily summarized in just a few sentences.

  • Go to bed the night before thinking positively about the next morning.
  • Wake up with your alarm when it first goes off, no snoozing.
  • Brush your teeth
  • Drink a full glass of water.
  • Get dressed in your workout clothes
  • Follow the acronym S.A.V.E.R.S. (Silence, Affirmations, Visualization, Exercise, Reading and Scribing)

It seems to be basic information but for those that love self-help/self-care books, the content makes sense and is organized in a way that it is easy to understand.
